We managed to be in Ft Lauderdale during spring break and the configuration of Spazio is open with a view of the street and the Atlantic beach across the street. It was a raucous street scene with pedestrian and car traffic passing by! With the weather being beautifully warm we chose to sit outside where the noise levels were high, making conversation difficult. Part of that was a duo of musicians in the restaurant that were excellent!

The food and service was more than equal to the visual entertainment and sound levels. The martinis were excellent ( no vermouth), the calimarie was excellent, and the salad was tasty but the vinegar and oil was weak on an excellent. Fresh ground black pepper ( one of my criteria for a decent restaurant) corrected that problem.

Alfredo sauce was excellent as was the marinara sauce and with beautifully prepared pasta and spectacular shrimp our entrees were perfect. A broad wine selection finished off a perfect meal!

This was listed as a gluten friendly/free restaurant so I was so excited to eat here. However their only GF and veg option was pasta. Not many other options for me other than a salad. That being said the salad was delicious. It was filling and had an amazing pesto dressing. I would go back for the salad but wish they added GF pizza crusts to their menu!

Food was very good, our server seemed to disappear, and there were a couple of people intoxicated coming in from the street to use restrooms. Back door was lodged open right by the women’s restaurant. The women in my group were a little concerned.

To begin with I asked for a table away from the live music though open table and when we got to the restaurant, its as if they didn't read the request or had our table reserved..... it was way way too loud, not even the waiter could hear us. Then we saw inappropriately people dressed in plain site, it looked like a strip club instead of a restaurant, my kids had to see these 2 girls (one with a very small bikini dancing and shaking her "stuff") around while we were trying to eat. On top of it all we are being charged a service fee... and then expected to pay a 20% tip on top of that to only find out that the service fee is shared with the waiter and who knows what else. For 4 people it cost us $144.00 and that is for simple pizza and pasta dishes with no booze, and one piece of pie cost $12.00?? really??
I am very disappointed and find this place way to expensive.

Food was good not anything different from most beach restaurants.Drinks we’re great though! I would go back to go sit at the bar. Waitress was in need of training the restaurant wasn’t full but she was overwhelmed with six of us. They pool their tips at the end, but other staff didn’t help her with checking on us. Ok night for a quick stop.

Took the kids here for quick dinner after driving in from the Keys. The food was good, a bit pricey, chicken was overcooked, and the drink prices were high. The waitress was very friendly.
They start by showing you photos on a tablet of some of their specials, or what are really more expensive items found on their menu. We found that to be weird and pushy.
Service was quick and all were friendly. When the bill came, it didn’t add up. I noticed a “service charge” of 15 percent on my pre tax total for our group of 4. Where we come from, they only add gratuity for big parties. Otherwise you add it yourself. I asked the waitress who gave me an ambiguous answer of it being part her gratuity but it’s shared. Again I asked if it was gratuity and I got the same answer. Just be honest. It’s 15 percent gratuity. I also noticed they wrote in “additional” in pen on the merchant copy. I’ve never seen that before, and I’m already on high alert. Needless to say that copy went in my purse and I signed the other copy, and clearly marked that the gratuity was included and not to add any additional. Took photos of all copies. Bottom line: nice clean spot with a great view and everything tasted good other than overcooked chicken but I left feeling like something wasn’t right. If you dine here, be careful that you don’t double tip.

Seated immediately. 1/2 of our party is celiac. Well addressed, but the main course took literally FOREVER to come out. Thank goodness we got a bottle of wine so we could drink while waiting for our mains. Food was really good. A nice much needed touch would be a gluten free offering of bread on the menu. Music was great and I’d go back, but the wait for food was wayyyyy too long. Waiter was very accommodating, but 48 minutes for a pizza and pasta dishes is ridiculous and the were not full.

We celebrated a birthday party here. It was the perfect spot overlooking the water and listening to music by a live band. The food was delicious and arrived on time considering our party of 9. The live band honores our request to su happy birthday which was just lovely! We would love to visit again.

I had high hopes for this restaurant only to find it on a very busy tourist area street, which severely detracts from the restaurant. On the website, I only saw a beautiful beach view, but in reality, it was filled with drunken tourists walking by. The food was ok, but definitely affected by the scene out side. I wish we had eaten inside, as my experience may have been a bit different.

Good service in a sense, but the staff ignored a party of five or ten that got very loud. The place had a poor ambiance for diners when raining outside, as it is very outdoor and bar oriented. The food and wine is good, which made our experience OKAY. The facilities are below average with the staff using it as well.

Had the pappardelle with the mushrooms and sirloin tips - it was delicious. My husband had the gnocchi and thought that it was very good, but that the pancetta was a bit strong. We sat on the sidewalk and there was live music playing just at the end of the railing. Great experience and our waiter was awesome.

My wife and I got off our plane and headed over to this gem on the beach for breakfast on Sunday. Great food. Sat right on patio overlooking the A1A and the gorgeous ocean. Had omelets and split a waffle. Everything was nice, food was excellent and the view is an ocean. Nice electronic chill music kept the vibe younger and fit the mood of the morning. Staff was attentive and nice. Check this spot for breakfast if you want zero wait (at 8am) with ocean views.

We booked Spazio last minute on Open Table. We were a little unsure how it would be on a Friday night with two newborns and a three year old, but we were blown away by the service and how accommodating they were. They sat us towards the back, away from the live band. They were so sweet to our three year old, and brought his food out first. The food was to die for. SERIOUSLY SO GOOD!!! Their burrata and crab "scoobies" were so good, and all our entrees was delicious. I highly recommend Spazio!

Good live music but that was about it. Food was mediocre at best. Chicken was terrible, undercooked and had to be sent back. Also saw two other parties return plates they weren’t happy with. Their specialty of noodles with filet mignon was overpriced and the beef wasn’t filet, it was a cheap, tough cut. Service was good when we could the the attention of the waitress, but she disappeared once food was served.

Won’t be returning, not worth the price.
